Mediators Association of Georgia (MAG) Equips its Office With Help of USAID/PROLoG Targeted Grant

13 July 2020 Mediators Association of Georgia (MAG) Equips its Office With Help of USAID/PROLoG Targeted Grant

The Mediators Association of Georgia (MAG) has equipped its office with the help of a USAID/PROLoG grant, issued to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in Georgia.

When the Government of Georgia declared a state of emergency due to the spread of COVID-19, Distance Mediation was legally introduced to parties in civil cases through a new online dispute resolution (ODR) platform, which was created in cooperation with the High Council of Justice of Georgia, and which allows 55 accredited mediators to have Webex accounts and to conduct online mediation sessions.

The office equipment and computers purchased through the USAID/PROLoG grant will be used for:

  • case management of mediation cases referred from civil courts;
  • communication with parties;
  • distribution of cases among mediators;
  • selection and appointment of a mediator when parties fail to agree on a mediator.

USAID/PROLoG’s support will reduce court caseloads through the use of alternative dispute mechanisms, such as mediation.
